"Proudly Old Glory led the way For boys by thousands in the fray; When home and country were assailed That starry banner never failed. One country and one flag, All rivals are a rag; The stars and stripes o'er land and sea Is flag enough for you and me." This first edition 1907 antique book is just full of old poetry like this. It is titled, "New Poems and Glad Outings:A Hundred Sprightly Poems." This book is also illustrated. This was by GAR soldier John J. Snook of Rochester, Michigan. He was a local Civil War hero, writer, speaker, and poet - "Poet Laureate". Many of the poems have excerpts from speeches or background introducing the poem. Many of the poems are patriotic such as: Old Glory, Lincoln, A Boy on Guard, A Manly Man, Stars and Stripes,Cherry Tree and Hatchet, The Grand Army of the Republic and more! There are poems relating to rural or farm life such as: Nutting Party, Farm Home, Rural Freedom, The Farmers' Club, The Peach is Queen and more! Many also relate to Michigan and New York such as: Mackinac Island, Michigan Agricultural College, The Hudson, Outing on St. Clair River and more! There even is a poem on the World's Fair.

Backwoods Treasure is a small Christ centered family business nestled in the backwoods of rural Michigan. We love antiques and collectibles and have had fun the past 15 years bringing our great finds at reasonable prices to a worldwide market! If you do not feel comfortable with purchasing from a Christian business, our 'About Me' page write up, and/or our Christian references printed on our business cards, we ask that you please do not purchase from us. We respect our Christian heritage and its values and see them as an integral part of our business. As Americans we are granted this blessed freedom of expression, and we ask that you respect this just as we respect your decision and freedom to purchase from someone else. We thank you beforehand for your understanding, and look forward to yet another great year of treasure hunting and listing! Our reputation is more important to us than making a "quick buck". We strive for honesty and accuracy in our descriptions and business dealings. We also have a very good reputation locally as buyers, estate liquidators, and sellers. Our items are for sale also in West Michigan antique stores and during the summer months at local antique shows and flea markets. We've also had the pleasure of having our items purchased by museums here in the States and in England.
We can be found on other internet venues under Backwoods Treasure. We have things exclusive to each market; however, sometimes one item is up in more than one market at a time. There is a small chance that an item may sell on a couple of sites before it is pulled. In this case, the sale will go to the first purchaser and the under buyer will receive a 10% discount good on one non-sale item for 30 days.
We thank you for viewing our treasures. We hope you enjoy our treasures and find something here to enhance your own collection. Happy hunting! May God richly bless you and yours, and America and her brave defenders!
